Not a bad game and very playable! Good job!
I found a bug while playing so let me know if you're needing bugs to be reported at this stage.
Thank you for playing the game and finding the bug. Please do let me know here, or by PM whichever you prefer. If it is the one about when you die on Ski Slope and restart from there, I am now aware of it and gonna fix it tonight on stream :D
When I got run over while crossing the road, it left my splat remains on the road but I wasn't re-incarnated. The traffic kept moving as if nothing happened, and the game could not continue. I tested on SpecEmu in 48k mode.

It is the F button to respawn lol (i know its not brilliant lol) . :D Btw I have updated the TAP file because there were a few other bugs which I have now fixed.

Correct TAP file is here: https://gofile.io/d/VYeX1C

TAP file for this game is available on Itch Io https://retrocodertv.itch.io/spikie-goes-skiing-zx.

Also hoping it will be added to the database here, so that I can link to it from my channel in due course :D

I knew WASD would kill everyone lol. But i was brand new and the keys seemed easier to get than QZIP or something else. I had intended to make a few options for controls but ran out of memory space :[
If you need a really small routine to redefine and read keys, I suggest DEFKEY.

The documentation is here.
